I'm not really sure. I just saw a bunch of them whining about it on twitter specifically Panotch.

he is way too soft to replace Coburn. Maybe replace Mez if he and Gervais are traded and battle with Gus for a spot.

Rich Smith @allsportsintel NHL - The Flyers are still involved in talks for Evander Kane, however talks have picked back up for Bobby Ryan, Hiller not involved.
10:05pm - 3 Jul 13

Who is this dude?? Found him in the Giroux contract thread, anyone know if he's legit?

Not knocking our own dudes, but what if the selling point to Vinny was we are going to get you a top flight, bonafide all star scoring winger after you sign here?? Just throwing **** out there, I'm bored.

Dreger said he believed selling point to Vinny was that Giroux was here and he would take pressure off of him. Most of the other teams in the running for Vinny didn't have a clear cut 1st line center like us. He also liked the young core of our team.

Agreed, they all have long term top-six forward potential.

Ballard?

Was a very good PMD, when he got to Vancouver looks like it fell apart. Would you be interested? 2mill per year? Looks like he may have been injured in 2011-12. Part ways with Mez and bring him in or are the same player?

Nah. I like Ballard. Also probably the best hip-checker in the NHL. But we have too many dmen of his ability already. Maybe if we hadn't signed Streit...

He is a good 3rd pairing d-man but that's it. Bill M proved that.

I'd be pissed if they move Simmonds. He's one of the reasons our power play is so successful.

If we are having talks with WPG it can't be about Kane unless Schenn is being shopped because of Vinny but I'd still think the talks are about Bogosian.

Cavy ad streit replace that in different ways. I we HAD to move one he's the one I'd move. Besides having him and hartnell on the same unit was redundant.

Hartnell is certainly not the base for an evander cane deal

I am late to replying about this signing of Vinny as I live in High River Alberta and as you may know, we have had severe flooding here..incredibly our house was spared and not one iota of damage. Me and my wife and incredibly thankful and our house and our pets are just fine!

Anyways, regarding this signing, I am very happy about ...especially the price....may by one year to long but with the cap going up eventually, that will not be a big deal! I was very surprised we got Vinny! I was worried that Holmgren might pay to much but 4.5 mill a year is excellent!

Also, in the bigger picture, Philly, despite what other fan bases say, remains one of the most popular attractions for free agents...that is great for our team now and going forward......

Judging by the hatred of this signing by other fan bases, I think we likely have done very well! Now we just need to get some kind of goalie along with Mason!

Had a bit of an awkward conversation with my boss yesterday about Giroux's extension. He says if he signs now his cap hit goes up this year. But that's wrong right? You can't overwrite a contract before it ends, and he is due next July right? I mean with that logic we can resign a player to a cheaper cap friendly deal before their deal is up...


Basically asking when/if G signs, its goes into affect July 2014? Stupid question I know and I'm quite sure I'm right
